Ex-detectives have blasted Bristol officers for 'an abuse of policing' for pandering to eco-warrior Greta Thunberg.
The 17-year-old Swedish activist was chauffeured to her protest in the city in an electric car courtesy of the force.
Former Met Police Senior Investigating Officer on murders Colin Sutton said it was inappropriate for officers to take a side in protests.
He sarcastically suggested that one day police would be providing replicas of Adolf Hitler's Mercedes-Benz complete with swastikas for right-wing groups.

Under a picture of the model of car, he wrote: 'I wonder how they will collect other protest leaders in future? Maybe they can find one of these for the EDL?'
